Classroom Educators

"Samaritans on the Digital Road" - a resource for the Ottawa Catholic School Board community to help develop Digital Citizenship skills.

This resource is built upon the shoulders of Jesus' parable about The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). Each grade (K-12) will explore the meaning of one verse as it relates to being an online citizen while completing five lessons created specifically to address the challenges found at each grade.


This aspect of the site will assist all Classroom educators in supporting Digital Citizenship in all our classrooms across the OCSB. It will touch on material that will be more relevant specifically to those supporting students in our day-to-day classes.

Teacher Checklist:

- Schools are to ensure each student (every year) signs the following “OCSB Acceptable Use of Technology Agreements”. This can be supported by messaging by classroom teachers, as well as school messaging to parents.

There is a new process this year for students/families to read and sign their "Responsible Use of Tech" Agreements. These forms are accessed via the student portals and must be submitted within each student's account.

For OCSB Staff Reference ONLY
